The wet field made regular prac-
tice impossible yesterday, and the
men spent the time batting at the
west end of the field. Every effort
is being made to improve the batting
of the men, that being the weak spot
in most of the players.
Illinois managed to defeat Chicago,
Wednesday, 11 to 9, in an eleven in-
ning game. Errors and loose play-
ing on both sides were the features of
the game- Chicago having 12 chalk-
ed up ia her error column. Chicago
knocked Lundyear out of the box in
the seventh aning, makiag sevena
runs, McCollum replaced him and
held Chicago down for the remainder
of the game.
Committee allows West to Pla.
The Athletic committee of North-
western University reversed its
decision in the West case last night,
and the Onarga man will hereafter
play on the purple team. The press-
ure brought to bear oa the committee
was too strong to be resisted, for not
only did all of the men of te school
with the exception of seven students
sign a petition asking for this action,
but President Henry Wade Rogers
took a hand in the fight and asked
the committee to reverse the decree.
West is a professional player, but all
the colleges with which Northwestern
has games with the exception of
Illinois, have consented to allow
West to play.
The Track Team.
All our track athletes are rounding
in shape, and Trainer Fitzpatrick has
decided to hold the 'Varsity meet
one week from today. The Bicycle
squad composed of Turner, Baldwi,
Aprost, and several new men, are
working hard on the Ypsilanti road.
Having no track for their men they
are handicapped quite a little, but
their coach reporte good work being
done by them. The 'Varsity meet
will decide the men who are to repre-
sent Michigan at Milwaukee, the 20th
Several new surprises will be sprung
this spring. The weight class, in
which Michigan has generally been
weak, is now as strong as any other
college in the West. Trainer Fitz-
patrick and Captain McLean have
been working like beavers with the
men, and will be rewarded by the
best track team we ever had.
It is hoped that more interest will
be shown in the 'Varsity meet than
has t"ni "foraer years. A great

We are informed by Manager
Emmons that another baseball dia-
mond, will be marked out on the
athletic field for the use of class
team. This will fill a long felt want
for in past years there has been
7 or 8 class teams practiciag on the
one diamond at the fair grounds.

quet in New York.
The DAILY is in receipt of the
following circular letter issued by
the committee having in charge the
U. of M. alumni banquet of New
Some years have passed since the
alumni in this city have met in a
large bady on a formal occasion. For
the past eigiateen monthas tiac Anaa
Arbor Round Table, an informal
dining club, has held monthly meet-
ings in this city. At these meetings,
and elsewhere, a sentiment or desire
for permanent organization has been
gaining steady growth, and at the
April meeting of this little body the
above sentiment crystallized into a
formal resolution to extend a call to
the alumni and former attendants of
the University in this vicinity to a
formal banquet, to be held in the
middle of May, and there to discuss,
incidentally, the advisability of form-
ing a regular alumni association.
The undersigned were appointed a
committee, and given carte blanche
in the extent of their arrangements
for this dinner. An interestimg pro
gram is assured. Efforts are making
to secure the presence of promient
speakers, distinguished alumni of the
University of Michigan from out of
the State as well as locally, and also
of President Angell ald the Deans
of the respective departments.
Ladies are especially welcome, and
the alumni are urgently requested to
insure their presence. The date set
for the diner is the evening of the
19th day of May. An iformal re-
ception will be held at 7, and dinner
will be served at 7:30. The place
has not yet been definitely decided
upon; the committee have under con-
sideration the offers of several lead-
ing hostelries in this city. The
dimner per plate has been fixed at
$2; this will cover the incidental ex-
penses of arrangements.
